Does “Twilight” depict statutory rape? Twilight: So he's 108 and she's, what, 15 or 16? Is that kosher? I haven't seen the movie or read any of the books. But it says on several web sites that Spoiler at the end of the third book, Eclipse, they have sex. It's not that I object specifically to this particular series but a few years ago I started noticing how frequently science fiction and fantasy genre movies and books depict relationships that are technically statutory rape, between a teenager and someone who is decades older or more. Sometimes it's even more borderline than this with the teenager being twelve or thirteen or something. I'm not particularly prudish but I just don't quite know what to make of it, particularly because it's usually done without even blinking, without the slightest hint that it's kinda libertine. P.S. A funny observation from Slate about vampire movies.
